Hi – I am Jan Ashby. As a founding member of the Sakura Project, I understand how to rank high on google. These days, it is imperative that you use video marketing and this is a big part of our flagship product, How to Be First on Google.
We are an organization which likes to help beginners to wordpress:
I will share six of the excellent tips Heidi came up with at her blog – if you want a peek at the rest, click the link at the end. I relate to number 2 – “Build a body of content related to your niche”, as it seems most essential. Equally significant, I feel, is to make a commitment. If you’re going to do a thing, do it right. So lay out a budget, and hire a virtual assistant or a content writer thru iWriter, Fiverr, or NeedanArticle.
You also need a calendar (online calendar or offline) to schedule topics and types of material you’ll publish and how often (slideshow, vlogging, content curation, blog post with lists & recommendations etc.). See my related post – Editorial Content Template. Here are the first six of Heidi’s 20 blogging tactics
1. Make a commitment to blogging.
Translation: budget and headcount. Someone must be responsible for the creation, publication and distribution of your blog’s content.
4 Considerations When Deciding on Your Blog Persona
By Jan Ashby
What do you want to be known as? This is what you should consider, before carving out your blog persona. What are some of your best traits? It could be your sense of humor, your story-telling ability, your “geekiness”, or your good nature. Are you self-effacing, sarcastic, loyal to a fault? You get the idea.
Ponder at length what characteristics are your STRONG points. Then you will be able to create an outline of your blog persona (a.k.a. Superhero)
Draw from Comic Books: Get Those Thoughts Moving!
Once you have made a list of your finest features (reliable, smart, inspiring, funny) you can look through comic books for inspiration and ideas. Keep in mind you can hire someone at Fiver to do some graphics (drawings) for you – you’ll NEED to be able to give the artist an idea of WHAT you want though. That’s why I’m mentioning this guide to help you (as well as the comic bks). 😎
It’s practical, common sense to get your people involved prior to an upcoming training. You can create a Facebook group and invite participants to become involved ahead of time. You can gain feedback as to what people would want included in the training, and also members of the group can get acquainted with one another. Or you might want to hold a Tweetchat and involve participants in a discussion.
The sky’s the limit, when it comes to social media. Anything you can do to spark discussion is worthwhile – you could do a survey before the official training event, to discover what the trainees would most like to have covered. If it’s LinkedIn, you could have the participants perform a task within LinkedIn prior to your training; have them get connected with ten new people, or add new skills to their profile.
It will be useful to find out the strengths of your team; then you can determine where, and how, their assets can best be utilized. Why not have each team member fill out a survey or form, to list down talents and abilities?
Home Business Helps: Use of Related Keywords Will Help Your Home Biz Blog
– By Jan Ashby
An understanding of related keywords is important for your websites. Here is what “related keywords” does for you:
Encourage a lower bounce rate
Provides Google what it wants
Gives cohesive quality to your site
Ties the content together
Provides value to the blog visitor
Speaking directly to #2, which is giving Google what it wants, this can result in better rankings for your various blog pages. You see, google likes it when your material has a “cohesiveness” to it. When the content makes sense to your visitor, Google is HAPPY and your reader is happy – so WHY not work on improving it? 😉
